I can remember that I did read the contrary (from Martin Schulze I guess).

I certainly do not want that, Enrique should be able to decide what need
to be on his boot-floppies, but if something like dpkg-ftp is no more
provided by the boot floppies, then we should consider moving it from
base to admin (or something similar). Base can be evolving, I don't see
that as a problem.

Since apt is in the base system then we could also remove the disk(s)
method... however I was not arguing against the removal of dpkg-ftp (in
fact I maintain it because some people are still using it, but I use
apt-get personnaly)...
